9:30 am
to communities of colors. i won't get into this too much. this slide is just to point out that transportation is our largest contributor to climate change at 38% of emissions, and dirty air from emissions, disproportionally impact, low income areas of color, that are at risk of asthma cancer and other pollution-related illnesses. accelerating the shift to electric cars will improve the health for all californians while cutting emissions. senate bill 1275, sets a goal of reaching 1 million electric vehicles, in ten years -- increasing access to disadvantaged communities, we're doing this in several ways first
9:31 am
is equity is clean vehicle rebates, which damian mentioned on one of his slides that this state subsidizes the electric vehicle program, to make sure low and moderate income communities, are receiving a higher incensive amount than others it will also set an income cap level, so wealthy individuals, don't have access to this because they can afford to purchase electric vehicles without it. there is increased financing options, there is a request proposal right now, by the california resources board how we can create a financing structure that will furthereder increase access, to low and moderate income individual, there is also car sharing
9:32 am
programs, and pie lat programs that are starting around that charging stations, and multifamily dwelling buildings, is a big issue, as head for charge coalition, there say cash for clunkierses program, which is really focused quite a bit on the south coast and the central valley at this point because of the really bad air quality out there, we're looking for ways to ensure that it's accessible throughout -- it already is accessible throughout california, but there is additional funding for those areas, because of the poor air quality, and mobility options turning in a clunkier instead of necessarily buying a new vehicle, you can get some rebates towards public transportation. this is where we are with some of the solicitations out currently, i mentioned the
9:33 am
financing assistance program, that is up to $1.5 million, that will go to help with financing, the purchasing of new and leased electric vehicles that should be finalized some time this summer. this month, we have a car sharing pilot program, for disadvantaged communities that will provide up to 2.5 million for clean air car sharing programs, which will come out may 27th. is the emfp the cash for clunkiers program, we will have a kick off in san francisco, next week, as this rolls out. and the next is the income cap and equity proigs vision there is $1.5 million that will go towards that, that will roll out some time in the fall and
9:34 am
winter. so another piece of this which i will go through quickly as we look at our transition to a clean energy economy, it's important to ensure all economies, have access to the economy that is emerging in california today, we have over -- working in energy solar power and related fields we have people of color, representing 60% of california how do we make sure this is representative of the diversity here in california? supplier diversity and inclusive hiring are very important touch points, that green lining focuses on. what this slide represents is the strategies around increasing diversity in sectors, such as the clean energy economy,
9:35 am
ensuring it's representative of california diversity, also of course competition and transparency, we want more people applying for these jobs, and trained in these new technology, so there is increased competition, so there is a robust and diverse hiring pool for this new economy, the supplier diversity which is really, what businesses are getting the contracts? we're making sure minority owned, women owned and lgbt and veterans programs those are under served, to have access to these types of contracts, once company, are contracting to do this work, who are they hiring? spending money around low income communities, we want to make sure folks are hiring from those
9:36 am
communities, and the economic ben tit -- beb benefits for the economies, are involved. what is next for all of you folks in the room to become educated, and push through policies, that are beneficials to all californian's. thank. [applause] >> amazing presentations. thank you everybody. questions discussion? comments from the commission? you know. i will wait. commissioner stephenson? >> i have a few questions, in
9:37 am
terms of the incensives, we're talking about getting people to purchase electric vehicles i can't remember i think it was your point about the costs coming down. how close to the incensives get to offsetting the differentuation between an electric and nonelectric vehicle right now? >> in the studies we have looked at there is energy density we're looking at basically, the cost of a total combustion engine vehicle, is $100 per kilowatt hours, edwif lent sea, for battery, is $100, per kilowatt hours so the
9:38 am
difference between -- vehicle is offset substantially by the grants that are currently available, if we take a regular vehicle, by comparison -- we have done this as part of our plan -- with the grants and incentives, they come down with 5-$7,000 in termses of purchase price, and the difference between regular vehicle and one of these vehicles but that's about the amount right. in terms of leases because the vehicles need these vehicles to meet the regulatory requirements, the lease deals on these vehicles are pretty incredible. i'm not doing car commercials, but [laughter]. i think you could quite comfortably, in the city of san francisco, lease a 2-3 year lease on an ev for under $200 a
9:39 am
month. which is roughly, by comparison an ice equivalent 100-$200 less >> what is the price differential filling my car with electricity, versus filling it with oil? >> we compare them? >> it's a quarter of the price to fill it. thank you. >> just to channel commissioner king for a second. he used to talk about the dynamic that was in everybody's presentation around multifamily tenants, and folks that are in multifamily units, i didn't have a car for a long time my wife and i started having kids and can't be biking the infant around certainly not two of
9:40 am
them. maybe one. so we're looking at ev's. and the big question there not to plug we were looking for a union made american automobile and looking at ford, semacs and chevy volt. semacs are getting 18 miles on the charge. there is no parking which there shouldn't be. but the options there are find someone someone that will rent us a garage, for 250 bucks to lease it. which becomes a ka none drum -- it starts to bay solution for folks like me and commissioner king used to talk about a lot.
9:41 am
as you get more range, the new chevy volt they say is going to get 80 mileses on a full charge i read in 2016? 50. okay. 50 then you get to a point where you can really be more reliance on the work place charge and not having to be doing the over night, you i think that is more in the economical range for nonprofit civil rights attorney -- >> one thing that might help there is a couple of different tools out there, u.c. david, uc irvine, and the air resources board is hosting these but it basically gives you the opportunity to take a look at the ownership of the vehicle, how much you pay for the vehicle and the fuel cost very sess the
9:42 am
vehicle fuel costs, for the ev it's startling, the numbers for the every day person if they're driving over 20 miles the numbers close so quickly, the ev becomes your only solution in terms of cost, i will see if i can make that tool available to you all, you can view it for yourself, and push it out to the people here. i think it's really valuable for folks to see that themselves, >> that would be great. commissioner wald? >> so this is clearly a daunting challenge it's very gratifying to see what seems to me huge sumses of money at both the state and regional level to invest. it's also gratifying to see that
9:43 am
organizations, groups that didn't always work so collaboratively together even on this particular issue are working hand in glove and making huge advances it's gratifying to see there are lots of programs out there, it's still clearly a really huge challenge. so i wonder if each of you wouldn't mind -- we're only san francisco, i shouldn't say "only" because we're san francisco. but i wonder if each of you wouldn't mind hopefully, now, telling us the one thing from your particular point of view and perspective, that san francisco should do that would help us get to where we need to
9:44 am
be when we need to be there. and maybe we could all take that and figure out how to make all three, or maybe two or maybe only one of those things happen. roland you want to start? i know we have to put a price on carbon, we can't do that right tom? [laughter]. >> well, let me get back to i think damian mentioned -- it turned out to be on the national average, 50% of households have access to a drive way or a garage, and the other half do not. the other half also happens to be a fertile market for electric vehicles they are in city which are typically, very progressive, and also the opportunities for many short
9:45 am
trips, so the question is -- the challenge is infrastructure, so the tough nut that i think san francisco, from my perspective, building out the market for light duty vehicles, how do we tap into this market which is 50% of the household, which have a difficult time as you mention mentioned trying to figure out where you charge the vehicle. a lot of activity occurring there. i will point back to the tough nut to crack, is money. a tough nut to crack is bodies on this issue, even if you have money trying to convince an owner of a building to install a charger or wok place, is not easy. what we're looking at right now the three iou's utilities pg and e, and southern california
9:46 am
gas and election put on the commission $1.1 billion in infrastructure money. now this is more than what the federal government put on the table, which is $400 million, for the entire country. very key question here is $1.1 billion, is the question of cross subsidy, that is an issues we dealt with during the 90s trying to get the electric vehicle market moving analysis shows, if electric vehicle is charging primarily at night, when there is extra capacity in the system including capacity fixed distribution lines, and adding capacity a good part oof a decade fighting load building, in this case we have a different per spiktive, if you december place oil, that's a
9:47 am
good thing from a pollution perspective and when you do that off peak, when with you have the extra capacity, it shows from consultants, from utilities, they're part of the applications, the entire system benefits to the tune of 2-$8 million in 2030 context, depending on what rates they're on. that is the cost of serving the electric vehicle customers at night is far exceeded by the revenue -- it's very technical, i apologize for this. i'm happenty to provide more information, but electric vehicle and all the grid customers can benefit, if we do this right, which is what we're urging the pec commission to do to make sure these are
9:48 am
instituted in a way that provides all of the benefits if pg and e gets resours to do this program, there are different models out there, in terms of different utility approaches they can put utilities, onto help small business owners to install infrastructure we think that is a key piece. >> yes? >> i thought we were going -- >> yes, i apologize >> i have something to say. [laughter] i will be brief. i would say the biggest wish list as johnny pointed out, there say lot of money going to this and money targeted for disadvantaged communities, for my advocacy purposes to have
9:49 am
effective facilitators, to make sure it's going to the right hands, director raphael, you talked in depth about the energy efficiency programs how your colleagues went directly into the communities, and were able to have a lot of success. that is it. period. if there is a similar program done for electric vehicles there say lot of money. i live on 26 lt and mission, i pass by the markets i see in the morning, trucks unloading produce for the day if those trucks were operating, electric vehicles, or hybrid or something like that having the targeting outreach is critical. the money will not be -- we don't have that targeted outreach exactly to that program, but for electric vehicles would be amazing.
9:50 am
>> i will give you one, then i might give you another one. we're regulatory agency. san francisco has got regulatory power, you need to man date electric vehicle charging be built into all new building construction and major remodel in the city i have seen 1 or 2 cranes i think there is some building going on [laughter]. mite be a good idea if all of those buildings, came preready for electric vehicles, that gives employees, and folks that live there take advantage of this technology, second thing is you are the city of san francisco, they're out there, they're show case free advertisement, we will give you electric motor vehicles, the money is there, the air district will supporter, that is something you can do now and
9:51 am
something you need to consider. >> that is great. in fact, that's a perfect thing to segue at new business later on, we have been talking about the department and some time ago, we passed a resolution that led to convening, around making solar mandatory to go solar powered development, to be eb ready on day one of development would be great, and the other thing that might be the big try effect ta is to be 0 waste ready on development, maybe that is something new we can talk about there, we can do a fun diagram, right cal? thank you very much. this is helpful. commissioner stephen son? >> this is something, maybe bob,
9:52 am
you can answer, what percentage of the fleet is electric in the city >> it's slowly transitioning, of light duty is about 1% is plug in vehicleses right now, the key thing is the key purchases as keys are turned over is a much higher percentage, do you have the number? debbie? >> yeah for 14/15, this fiscal year, 15% are plug in electric. 20% are gasoline so 80% are cng, or high bride, we're difficult nitly greening, the electric is still a small percent, if you think of where we were we're up to 15% for new vehicles, for this calendar fiscal year.
9:53 am
>> the pace is picking up and the incensive funding that the district has is getting attention of the purchaser department fleets. >> thanks bob. thank you everybody. unless there's other comment? we can go to public comments. members of the public want to comment on this item? seeing none, public comment is closed. thank you everybody for coming sekita, say hi to executive director, aguilar from us. thank you. again [applause]. thanks bob monica if you can read the next item? >> review and approval of resolution 2015-04-coe -- (reading) of draft resolutions,
9:54 am
and reimburses sponsor is deborah raphael, direct speaker, shawn rowsen moss senior environmental special development community part sner thips sf carbon fund and alexa kielty 0 waste specialist. >> thank you. as you know, we come before you to report on our grant making activities, this year in february we issued an rfp, for die version programs it's important to realize, this is grant making around 0 waste specifically, what we're looking for specifically what we're looking for in here is a deliberate metric, of tons diverted. we received 16 proposalses, for about 1-and-a-half million dollars, we had half of that or
9:55 am
some -- i don't remember -- 800,000 to give out. more than we could give out. i want to recognize a couple of actions that the commission asked of us, and how we're listening to you and taking action there is a concern last year about the process of how these awards were given. so my staff will be reporting on that process to you today to talk about what we learned from last year and what we did this year. secondly commissioner wald has said it would be -- warm her heart if the people who get this money would come and tell us about their work. so some of the people you see in the audience are in fact those people and with that, i will turn it over to my able colleagues, shawn and alexa who will walk you through both of those. >> nice to be here you know this is my favorite part of my
9:56 am
job, our process we are leased the rfp, i'm not sure it was included in your packet here's what we're looking for and here's the evaluation metrics etc., we promoted it a lot of places, remoted it to other city department, that do grant makes, we promoted it every staff and department has a huge list, so all of the staff promoted it to their list and a specific list that rachel berkle keeps, it goes to their list and go to d.c. yf, our website, we did an extensive amount of outreach on the rfp, we had a bitters conference we know as a government entity it's public money, it can seem overwhelming
9:57 am
if you are a young community based portion organization to put this together we have a bitter conference to walk them through the rfp, we post the questions on the website, then we also have you know, people can e-mail alexa with additional questions, which are also posted on the website. so a we as debbie said got 16 proposals in we have panels that consisted of alexa and myself, and a 0 waste expert, a long time residence and possibly one of the first consultants in the u.s. so very knowledgeable so we scored proposals, anybody who got over 70 got to the nekdz round, and anybody over a 90, we thought, yes, we will fund them, the ones
9:58 am
between 70 and 90, we interviewed those people, that was a different committee of alexa, me, and the executive director of the clean city tell us if you don't know work force development organization that serves people with barriers to employment and formulae incourse rated, so they do a lot of work on 0 waste, a grantee of our, and run 0 waste programs she was interviewed. and selected the grantees, with that i'm going to hand it over to alexa, to tell you about the selection of the grantees, and some of the wonky and less wonky, things we discuss. thank you. >> thanks shawn >> hi commissioners, i'm alexa, kielty, with the 0 waste program, i will talk to you about our background our
9:59 am
director covered some of this basically, this is money coming from the refuse rates it's specifically earmarked for die version, we are talking about reuse, recycling, waste compose prevention, we're looking at how much tons can we divert through these projects, but we also look at the cost per tons we look for cost effective projects as well. we look at how the tons are measured. we actually during the interviewses, and the application, how are they pressure measuring the tons and weighing the material as it comes through, and we look at the highest and best use, we value reuse over recycling, waste prevention is something we value the most in the hierarchy. to achieve or goals in 0 waste we need to reach communities,
10:00 am
that is a priority to us and we need to look at what will amplify our 0 waste message, we take that into consideration, we look at our cobenefits, i wanted to highlight some of the cobenefits from the recommended projects for example, you will see sf food bank they not only feed hungry people in sachlt frachlt, they capture edible food that is december sinned to landfill, through the food recovery program. this is a fanistic program, this is the second year we're funding it in a row. the conservation san francisco -- for youth specifically, they're doing tremendous work they have evented in san francisco, they divert compost and recycling at i vents, throughout the city. will you see them at events in san francisco, s
